I am in contest prep for a bodybuilding competition I

Patient

Q: I am in contest prep for a bodybuilding competition. I was wondering how plan b will affect my hormones right now with being under 2 wks out from my show... What will it do yo my hormones? Will it cause me to store/hold onto weight? What are all of the affects it will have on my body?

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Read and understood the history of your taking part in the bodybuilding competition, and taking plan-B can cause the problems as it can due to its hormonal contents in large more quantity.
It can cause withdrawal bleeding on day 5 onward.
Can cause retention of sodium and hence the water.
If not taken till now, try to avoid and use condom.
If at all needed already, can not then help.

Hope this helps you.
